This is an attractive 1851 U.S. Coast Survey chart of the Washington and Oregon Coast. It covers from Cape Arago in Oregon north to the Columbia River and includes Astoria, Cape Lookout, Cape Foulweather and Cape Disappointment or Cape Hancock. This map is the third sheet of three, which together chart the entire western coast of the United States from Monterey Bay north as far as the Columbia River. Copious notes and sailing instructions in the lower right hand quadrant of the map are an interesting read for the nautically inclined. The chart was prepared and under the supervision of A. D. Bache, one of the most important and influential superintendents of the U.S. Coast Survey in the 19th century. Published in the 1851 edition of the Superintendent's Report.
